Kellnar, S. and Hansen, Ernil and Hofmann, U. and Heim, M. and Horst, S. (1987) Zur autologen Transfusion zwischenzeitlich tiefgefrorenen Blutes im Kindesalter [Autologous transfusion of blood deep frozen in the interim in childhood]. Zeitschrift für Kinderchirurgie = Surgery in infancy and childhood 42 (4), pp. 238-240.
In the report we describe a method of reducing the number of transfusions of heterologous blood in patients with a surgical correction of chest walls. In 71 children between 2 and 17 years of age, 10-15% of total blood volume were withdrawn 3-4 weeks before the operation, deep frozen and thawed at the appropriate time to be ready for retransfusion. This arrangement reduced the need of heterologous blood significantly from 18.6% (prior to the introduction of the method) to 4.2%.
